Publisher's Summary

Sherlock Holmes said that Mary Morstan might have been most useful in detective work if she had only remained single. She had a decided genius. So, bored with staying at home while her husband is away helping Holmes catch criminals, Dr. Watson's wife decides to have a go at the game herself. In this she is ably assisted by her friend Emily Fanshaw, who likes to play a transvestite role occasionally.

A good story

I liked this book, it was really fun and entertaining, but.... I have some issues with it.

The first and main one is having Mary working with Moriarty at the beginning. I can't understand what was the point of make her working against her husband and Holmes if that isn't the crux of the story. I didn't like Watson's deconstruction too much, either but then it is possible that my love for Watson is making me biased in that respect.

And I would like to have less characters from other books showing up here. The first one was funny, by the fourth I was tired of them.

Nevertheless, this is a engaging story that got me listening to the end.
